The Human Centipede @DukeofYorks – for Bored of Brighton

Today’s idea – The Human Centipede  @DukeofYorks

The Human Centipede

“I don’t rate his bedside manner.”The Duke of York’s cinema, a leading independent cinema, is to me, one of the venues that makes Brighton so unique. A Grade II listed building, no-one can miss the iconic black and white stocking’d legs on the roof! The Duke’s, as commonly referred to, hosts special late-night viewings of cult films – previous shows have included the Grindhouse double bill by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, and the Lord Of The Rings trilogy (though I don’t think I would’ve survived that epic event!). There’s something really special about being part of a midnight gathering, all with a shared love of the big screen.

The Human Centipede, a horror/comedy written and directed by Tom Six, is already a global cult phenomenon. The film tells the story of a German doctor who kidnaps three tourists and joins them surgically together to form a ‘human centipede’ – you get the picture. The concept of the film arose from a joke between Tom and his friends one, I can only assume, drunken night. The Human Centipede has received mixed reviews, but has received some high accolades such as Best Picture at Fantastic Fest, Austin TX and Best Movie at Screamfest LA.

Personally, I can’t wait for ‘The Human Centipede (Full Sequence)’, which is set to be released in 2011. Surely there will also be a third, it’s only right?

    • The film was hilarious, though not gory enough for my tastes. The experience was somewhat hampered by a select few who obviously found the need to share their ‘brilliance’ with the entire audience…boo hiss!
